As a former Children's Librarian (now Teen Librarian) I could not resist this book. Jane Jameson is the Children's Librarian in her hometown of Half Moon Hollow (and yes, it's as small and redneck as it sounds). The library director, a mean and spiteful woman, seizes upon budget cuts as a way to get rid of Jane and fires her. As severance, Jane is given a $25 gift certificate to Shenanigan's and a coupon for their free potato skins appetizer. Jane proceeds to Shenanigan's and spends her severance on alcoholic beverages, then starts a tab.

On her way home that evening, after sobering up with generous lashings of black coffee, Jane's dilapidated station wagon dies. Jane starts the long walk home, stumbling and falling in the mud. A drunken hunter, also on his way home, see's Jane and mistakes her for a deer - and shoots her. Luckily for Jane, the charming, witty, handsome man who flirted with her at Shenanigan's has also followed her home. And extra luckily, he's a vampire willing to turn her.

What follows is a hilarious story about Jane and her new unlife. Though similar to the Sookie Stackhouse novels in premise (vamps are out and drinking synthetic blood, werewolves are not, etc.) this book is far more comedic. Don't look for drama in this book, but do be prepared to laugh-out-loud.

Originally read Feb. 25, 2010. Reread July 13, 2014 on audio.
